Word Wednesday - IT

A Couple of Months Ago

Hey Mom, where's my book?

Huh? What book?

MY book, you know the one we wrote together, before we even started to blog - a year ago.

Oh... um... You know that stack of papers on the couch that you like to nap on...

Yeah...

Um, that's IT.

What? I'm napping on IT! Shouldn't you be doing something with IT?

Well I should be trying to get IT published... but (yada, yada, yada - boring human excuses) need to make some changes to IT...

Well then get IT done! I'll even let you slack a bit on commenting if you get IT together. I'm putting my paw down!

Present Day

Okay the deadline is here Mom... is IT done?

Yep!

Excellent! So what's next?

Well, this is my first time, but editing, maybe an agent, getting IT accepted at a publisher, then more changes and making IT pretty with photos (yada, yada, yada more boring human talk) and then voila!

Okay I'm not letting you slack again.

You know not everyone's book gets published Fin.

I know. I'll be happy and proud if you just try Mom. I'm sure our friends will be too.
